For nearly 50 years, we have delivered award-winning integrated healthcare planning and design for some of the world's foremost medical centers and health systems. Our work is informed by a single core philosophy: to embrace the kind of forward-thinking leadership and expertise necessary to deliver facilities that are innovative, flexible, efficient and that support a healing, sensitive environment for patients, their families and the healthcare staff.
We have been named the No. 1 Healthcare Design firm by Modern Healthcare for an unprecedented ten consecutive years, designing more than 28.4 million SF of healthcare space with $6.7 billion in completed construction projects in 2011. We take seriously our role as one of the leading healthcare design firms in the world, and we realize that our leadership position carries with it responsibility—a responsibility to serve not only as design innovators, but also a responsibility to take a visionary view of an industry that touches nearly every person from nearly every walk of life.
We understand that the healthcare landscape is changing dramatically in the 21st century. Population demographics, the economy, plus advances in technology and equipment will all contribute to tremendous shifts in healthcare delivery in the coming years. Our mission is to help our clients anticipate and adapt to these new paradigms. We believe that it is important that the healthcare facilities we plan and design are high-performing healing environments—environments that are restorative, contributing positively to the physical, emotional and even spiritual well-being of occupants.
We have the ability to go beyond bricks and mortar; we have the talent, skills and knowledge to empower our clients to "Heal, Care, Work BETTER" both financially and operationally, whether in a small specialty clinic, a multi-million dollar replacement hospital or a multi-facility healthcare campus. Our talented professionals seek and deliver the nurturing and hospitality-like solutions that our clients desire, and combine these innovative designs with state-of-the-art technology to take the delivery of healthcare to levels never reached before.
Winston Churchill once said, "First we shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us." This is especially true of healthcare spaces, where success is ultimately measured by the positive impacts our design decisions will have on patients, their families and caregivers. We are committed to the thoughtful design of innovative healthcare environments as we work diligently to be responsible gatekeepers of the 21st-century healthcare experience.
